Phalange Party and the Gemayel family on Saturday observed the Third Commemoration Mass of Pierre Gemayel, the assassinated late industry minister, at Mar Antonios church in Jdeideh.

The mass was attended by representatives of President Michel Suleiman and Speaker Nabih Berri, Prime Minister Saad Hariri, March 14 leaders, and a number of ministers and MPs.

Maronite Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir was represented by Bishop Bechara al-Rahi who delivered a sermon that said: "He (Pierre Gemayel) was the rock of love on which nations are built upon. He followed a political path that was open on all political forces in order to preserve the emblem of Lebanon especially in freedom of expression and practicing democracy in the frame of sovereignty."

Al-Rahi added that "Pierre's movement was for correcting the relations with Syria and protecting constitutional institutions as well as abandoning the policy of imposing conditions."

The representative of Patriarch Sfeir said that Pierre Gemayel restored trust in youth's minds in their pioneering role regarding building their country in order to restore the Christian position in the political decision so that Lebanon becomes the centerpoint of civilizations in the East.

After the sermon, Phalange Party leader former president Amin Gemayel delivered a speech that was charged with emotional meanings as he addressed his son Pierre reassuring him on the family and Phalange Party, he also reminded of Pierre Gemayel's relations with political leaders.

"Your brother is keeping the oath," said Gemayel addressing his assassinated son about the emerging role of his brother MP Sami Gemayel.

"The party that you (Pierre Gemayel) loved and served till the last breath will remain as the conscience of Lebanon," added Gemayel.

The Phalange leader said that he was visited on Saturday by a delegation from March 14 students in NDU who came to dedicate their electoral victory for the soul of Pierre Gemayel.

"You are alive in each one of those youth," added Gemayel addressing his assassinated son.

Gemayel said that the gathering of the leaders who attended the mass was an expression of solidarity and determination to press on with his son's struggle and "the struggle of all martyrs."

"A national unity government was formed and it gathered all of Lebanon, all of sects and sides, and we ask you (Pierre Gemayel) to pray for us from above so that we do not lose way. We want for this government to be a government of consensus. We want it to succeed and lead Lebanon toward the safety shore," stressed Gemayel.
